SANTA MARIA, Calif. — The City of Santa Maria began a road construction project Wednesday morning that will improve the surfaces on dozens of streets.
Drivers are warned that temporary delays will occur during the course of the city-wide project, which is expected to last through mid-October, weather permitting.
According to a release, construction will move quickly from street to street, and parking will not be allowed on the streets in active construction areas.
Notices will be displayed on roadways where work is scheduled to take place and will list the dates and times parking will not be allowed.
The work is part of Santa Maria’s street maintenance project, which is aimed at improving the driving surface on city roads.
The city said the most notable, highly traveled streets that will be resurfaced include Stowell Road, Skyway Drive, and Depot Street.
Other areas targeted for the project are north of Donovan Road between Blosser Road to Railroad Avenue, residential streets south of Main Street between Russell Avenue and Bradley Road, as well as other smaller streets will be resurfaced.
The cost of the project is listed at $2.5 million with funding coming from gas taxes.
